Finger-woven and Beaded Sash by Dick Kearny

A very tightly woven sash from fine woolen yarn. Dick copied this sash from Plate 161 in Ted Brassers book, "Bo'jou, Neejee!" The body of the sash is 41 1/2" long and 6" wide. The fringe on each end is 29" long with the first 4 1/2" braided, the rest has been twisted due to the fineness of the yarn. The original is attributed to the Iroquois.
